Grunge Paste #2 - Shells

Well if yesterday's post was a quick one this one a super quick one - this is my second entry to the PaperArsty challenge details can be seen here.

My first was using GP in the traditional way through a stencil for this post I wanted to try something different.  I bought this little silicon mould a couple of weeks ago and wondered if GP would work in it - took a while to dry out but I'm really happy with my little shells.

thank you for looking...xx

PA Topic 6 - Grunge Paste

The latest theme for the PaperArtsy challenge is the use of grunge paste or similar medium - full details can be found here.

Afraid this is quick post as I wanted to get my entry in before we go away for the weekend.  I've used the GP for the stencilled leaves in the background - with added texture from lightly dabbing the paste with my finger whilst still wet.  Everything was then painted in Antarctic and the stencilled areas dried brushed with Lake Wanaka.  I also used GP tinted with Inky Pool to stencil in the wording.

To finish I painted some splodges of green and pinks onto to card and then cut out the stamped the flowers and leaves.

I think this is the third Ikea mirror I've transformed - I wonder how many have been purchased for the same reason? I can't believe anyone would leave them plain white .......

Happy Easter everyone xx
